Random Five Friday

The end of another week, which means it’s time for five randoms:

1.) Yes, I told myself a few weeks ago that I wasn’t going to buy many flowers this spring. Allow me to introduce you to the first batch.  I’m waiting for the rain to subside, so I can plant them.

2.) Sundae has an appointment Monday for her check-up. (Shhhh, she doesn’t know yet.)

3.) It’s only fitting that some of my randoms this week pertain to Mother’s Day.  This picture was taken on my first Mother’s Day as a mom.  I’m wearing a red rose for my mother, and Marshall’s red rosebud is pinned to his hat.

4.) I don’t think I’ve ever shared this photo of my mom and me. She was 43 when I was born, then my dad died when I was just eight months old.

A favorite picture of Motor Man and his mom.  This quote seems appropriate: “A man loves his sweetheart the most, his wife the best, but his mother the longest.” ~Irish Proverb

5.)  And, finally, several folks close to me have lost their mothers since last Mother’s Day.  The first one hurts the worst, but the holiday is never quite the same once she’s gone.
